Before the beep
A Work in Progress Showing
Rosa Sánchez and Alain Baumann of Kònic thtr present excerpts of past works in performance, installation, and interactive technology, and share the status of their current work in progress, Before the beep—a dance performance piece inside an interactive and distributed installation, which allows the public to participate both remotely and in person. A dancer is the core, activating the information generated by the audience on-site through the use of cell phones, and through text and audiovisual input from the audience connected via the Internet. Before the beep refers to the changes of perception in interpersonal communication mediated by new technologies, and to the spaces that this mediation generates.
